. . . Yea he posted a note on my door, when we first came. " I have a phone if you need one, apt 8, chet" Those days are long gone. Him too probably. When did you cruise down there, might have met on the Halloween super parties that used to be safe. I was Commander USA. Remember him? on Cable introducing some movie. Some dude stole my belt, dammit..

What Mall? You had Nichols,Roses, and the Plaza with the grave yard in the middle.LOL
You're right! We called it "The Plaza". We didn't know what a mall was at that time. And the graveyard is still there, though many people drive past it without a clue...

I remember the hotdogs at White's and ESPECIALLY the barbecue sandwiches at Darwin Waters. Do you remember how they had to hire an off-duty police officer to stay there on Friday and Saturday nights? That was kinda unusual for that period of time and I remember that it made me a little uneasy to see a uniformed police officer standing around... And don't forget the ORIGINAL Hardee's on 14th Street or the (I THINK!) original Little Mint on Memorial Drive, where Ernie's Subs is presently located... And, of course, Peppi's Pizza Den, where CeCe's Pizza is now...
I definitely remember the Hardee’s there near Stadium Cleaners not too far from the original Krispy Kreme. The Little Mint had good Carolina Dairies Ice (I think) there, if it weren’t from Carolina Dairies, it was still good or was that the In and Out store by T-N-T Cleaners. Time is turning on me! Did plenty Peppi’s Pizza Den’s all you can eat too.

Surely you remember Jerry's Sweet Shop, at the Mall...
Made special trips to Jerry’s Sweet Shop (it was just Pitt Plaza; no mall) and Diener’s to change the pace from Krispy Kreme.
